The highest level of fire danger declared in Ukraine

On August 21-22, extreme (5 class) fire hazard is expected throughout the territory of Ukraine, except for Odesa and Zakarpattia regions.

This was reported by the State Emergency Service.

"The citizens quite often neglect the rules of fire safety, especially during the declaration of a fire danger period, tossing cigarette butts to the road-sides, leaving garbage in forests or burning it on household plots," the rescuers noted.

The State Emergency Service underlined that there were 555 fire outbreaks on open territories in Ukraine on Saturday.
